to north korea to meet with kim jong-un. since then people have dismissed rodman for how little he knew, but as ridiculous as people said his trip was, he did learn a few things about the mysterious north korean dictator. in an interview with "the sun" entitled why i danced with michael jackson with north korean tyrant, he described him as a cool guy who wears everyday, regular clothes and likes music and sports and stuff. we only see him in the military ensemble. the north korean leader likes '80s music which explains the dancing to michael jackson. however, the most revealing detail is what he said about kim jong-un's wife. according to rodman, quote him again, she's a beautiful woman, very elegant and quite tall for a korean, maybe 5'5". she kept talking about their beautiful baby daughter. that is a pretty amazing revelation. we know almost nothing about kim jong-un's wife and the fact that the couple might have a child is a state secret. last year we saw her for weeks and until now some speculated some she was pregnant, some speculated she was not in favor, she dressed too showy. d

kim jong-un. believe it. rodman and members of the harlem globetrotters made the trip to pyongyang this week as part of a documentary project. there was no guarantee that they would meet kim jong-un, but turns out the north korean leader was up for playing host. here is the pair sitting courtside at an exhibition basketball game which was capped off with a party at kim jong-un's palace. it gets better. it seems dennis rodman failed to brush up on his koreas before heading overseas. check out this tweet. maybe i'll run into gangnam style dude while i'm here. that, of course, is a reference to the south korean rapper psy. not surprisingly given the tense relationship between the north and the south, psy was not amused tweeting back, i'm from south, man. >>> next, you may have noticed that every time a poll comes out about congress, their favorability rating is embarrassingly low. here is the question though. who are the 9% or 10% or 12% of people who do give them a thumbs up?

this week, the diplomatic stunner of the year so far. a meeting by the basketball court with kim jong-un. no american gets in to see the north korean ruler. not even, say, google founder eric schmidt, whose visit was not well regarded by the u.s. government. >> we don't think the timing of this is particularly helpful. >> reporter: but maybe that's because schmidt was never an nba star. while one of the known things about the secretive kim's private life, from his days as a student at a swiss boarding school, is that he was an nba nut, especially big on rodman's old team, the bulls. and when "vice magazine" pitched north korea on bringing over rodman and some harlem globetrotters to do some exhibition play for its new hbo show, it was, "sure, come on in." and so, dennis rodman is there among the uniformly attired, stiff-faced north korean elite. the nba star, as known for his hair and for his flamboyant outfits, as for his hook shot. the hall of famer known as "the worm" has taken a shot at reality television. and some high profile romances. toning it down a little bit over there, the wo

that perhaps kim jong-un, the north korean leader, heard the messages being sent by beijing, by russia, and so many others to dial it all back, to try to tone down the rhetoric that was calling for war, a nuclear conflict on the peninsula, even rockets going to the mainland united states. at the same time, some north korean experts were warning that kim jong-un was taking it too far. he was whipping up so much fervor for war inside north korea that when he had to back down, he could lose face, or worse yet, he would have to make good on some of his threats. what is sure at this point is that in the coming days and hours, everyone from washington, to beijing, from seoul to moscow, are going to be waiting, watching, and listening carefully for what comes from pyongyang. back to you. >> all right. jim, thank you very much. >>> the man behind all these threats, kim jong-un, a young leader who since taking the reins from his father further isolated the country from the rest of the world. one describes it as an organized crime family with a blood line of brutal leaders. athena jones has more on new
been. it's a journalist's dream to be able to meet kim jong-un face-to-face. many diplomats would fight for that chance as well. and here dennis rodman is the first american ever to meet face-to-face with him. what do you make of it? >> i don't. i just don't. i'm so thoroughly embarrassed for us, so thoroughly embarrassed for north korea, so thoroughly embarrassed about this conversation. because it's not really talking about anything serious. this is like a publicity stunt. i grew up in detroit. i loved dennis rodman the basketball player. and i think anyone who played with him would say he's one of the best basketball players they played with. he's in the hall of fame. but structuring a sunday morning around his trip to north korea in conjunction with international politics? it's absolutely ridiculous. >> anna, what do you think the point was of this trips, besides shooting an hbo documentary. >> i think it was pointless. i think there was no point. i'm absolutely with lz on this one. it's all i can do to keep my eyes from rolling to the back of my head to be discussing this. frankly,
, the first american to meet kim jong-un, not john kerry or even jimmy carter, nope, it was dennis rodman, aka the worm. they watched basketball. kim is a big fan, but that was just the beginning. some ice skating too and an aquarium visit then a long dinner and lots of drinks with one of the world's most mysterious and dangerous men. >> i love him. i love him. the guy is awesome. he was so honest. >> that about a dictator who presides over prison camps, allows millions to starve and has threatened to destroy the united states. amazingly, rodman now has more firsthand impressions of kim than any other american. >> there is nobody at the cia who could tell you more personally about kim jong-un than dennis rodman, and that in itself is scary. >> and dennis rodman joins us right now. i guess you don't find it scary. >> no, it's not scary. it's amazingly wild, man. you know what, it was such a great experience. me and my -- i call him my son, elton king, we went there, man, and it wasn't supposed to be like that. it was just like meet the guy and have a good time. >> it turned into such an event.
the kim jong-un government is looking at some significant financial problems. spee-1 very quickly. north korea has been aggressively exporting monetary nonmonetary goal. if you're trying to tighten up the financial affects against north korea, you need to look at these tradable precious metals as sanction the item. they are typically marked with the north korean emblem. when they're not, the gold can be tested precise as to where its origin emanates from. so you could create a verification compliance that could screen out the gold export which might be generating as much as a billion plus a year for north korea. our estimate 2005 north korea's illicit earnings on october $2,801,000,000,000, and that was overtly -- i think it's increasing. >> thank you for the idea, dr. asher. that's a good one. we would go to mr. marino. >> thank you, chairman. good afternoon, gentlemen and thank you for being here. over here. first of all let me say that i personally did not consider a retired basketball player showing up at his own pr promotion in a wedding dress a series credible ambassador representi

>>> it has been weeks since dennis rodman traveled to north korea to meet with kim jong-un. since then people have dismissed rodman for how little he knew, but as ridiculous as people said his trip was, he did learn a few things about the mysterious north korean dictator. in an interview with "the sun" entitled why i danced with michael jackson with north korean tyrant, he described him as a cool guy who wears everyday, regular clothes and likes music and sports and stuff. we only see him in the military ensemb ensemble. the north korean leader likes '80s music which explains the dancing to michael jackson. however, the most revealing detail is what he said about kim jong-un's wife. according to rodman, quote him again, she's a beautiful woman, very elegant and quite tall for a korean, maybe 5'5'5". she kept talking about their beautiful baby daughter. that is a pretty amazing revelation. we know almost nothing about kim jong-un's wife and the fact that the couple might have a child is a state secret. last year we saw her for weeks and until now some speculated some she was pregna
